Look, they are not even very competitive! just do a quick search on Ebay and Boatsandoutboards, you will see a lot of decent 2nd hand outboards where you can go and see the engine, check it etc.
They want £2.3k for a 30hp outboard, which is 2nd hand and 2stroke! and £125 for delivery, and I Suppose at least another £300 for controls etc.. so you will be paying nearly £3k.
Honda (which is the most expensive make of outboard in the UK) gives a BRAND NEW 30hp FOUR STROKE for just £4k with all guages, controls, cables, etc.
Now! which one would you go for?!
